The Theocracy of Layshland is a small, safe nation, remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, national health service, and state-planned economy. The devout population of 23 million Layshis are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Spirituality, with Healthcare, Welfare, and Defense also on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 32.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The fair Layshlandian economy, worth 873 billion Porcels a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 37,977 Porcels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Leader's Twitcher account is typically used to share Dragon memes rather than government policy, pushy mums tell their kids to be doctors and engineers but steer them away from being penniless lawyers, new urban roads are threatening city parks, and ministers are now allowed to put suggestions in the governmental suggestion box. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Layshland's national animal is the Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Layshland is ranked 110,073rd in the world and 6th in Chan Jyoti Private World for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring zero on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
